Previous UK TV Satellites

The current UK TV Satellites are Astra 2E, Astra 2F, and Astra 2G.

These three UK TV satellites are located at 28.2 to 28.5 degrees east.

Prior to these new satellites, there were a number of previous satellites that were used for UK Satellite TV.

Some of the previous UK TV satellites have been moved to other orbital positions, and are being used for “back up” purposes.
